Chic Country is a top!

Just a short post tonight, but I was impatient to share.  Chic Country is a top! 


I hoped the tweaks I made to the pattern to add the borders would make the circles pop, and I am not disappointed! I discussed those tweaks here.

Now I'm going to splurge and have a longarm quilter baste this for me so I can start hand quilting.  I really don't feel like basting but I really feel like quilting, and Liz has a very quick turn around time.  I'll have it back to get started on the quilting well before I would have talked myself into the chore of basting!

  1. It turned out so striking! You did a great job with it, and I really like how you attached the border.
    I agree--when hand quilting a large quilt it is so worth it to have a long arm quilter baste it!

  5. It's so beautiful! The scalloped edges really do make those circles shine. And what a great idea to have the longarmer baste for you. I've never heard of that before.

  10. That border you added is perfect! Love those greens with the orange. I had never thought about having a longarmer baste for me before. That seems like it would be worth the $$. I hate basting quilts.
